Day 303

by Rev Joel Yong

Ephesians 1:16-19
I never stop thanking God for you. I always remember you in my prayers. I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Christ better. Then you will have deeper insight. You will know the confidence that he calls you to have and the glorious wealth that God’s people will inherit. You will also know the unlimited greatness of his power as it works with might and strength for us, the believers.

The apostle prays for the church to know God better. He prays they will understand what He calls them to and the inheritance they will receive.

He is praying they will be secure in their identity after knowing this and not live as if this life and the treasures of this world are all there is.

He also prays they will know of God’s might and trust in His ability to deliver and to save.
This too will grant them security and faith in life.

I think these are great prayers to pray for our kids.
If we are to leave them anything- this is it.

The security of knowing who they are in Christ and that the God who loves them is powerful, loving and faithful.

Nothing will rock their boat in life if they know these truths.
